One response to “Humans see patterns…

  1. I am very concerned with copyright – both my own and respecting that of others. I’ve been doing a lot of reading on other blogs, on WordPress, and elsewhere and it’s a minefield to understand. The one thing I’ve found out on WordPress is that people will “scrape” content from other people’s blogs and put it on their own. I think they use programs to do it automatically and it’s to draw people to their site to get hits for advertising income, deliver malicious content, etc. It sounds to me like it’s unavoidable, but you can help to protect your intellectual property by putting copyright notices on your main page as well as in each post and by putting links in your posts which link to your blog and even specific posts on your blog. This way, when your content is inevitably scraped, you might still get people surfing those bad blogs but then linking back to your blog.
